Rigid torque rod replacement

Because of the infinite possible rod lengths required for replacement of rigid torque rods, manufacturers have developed “two piece” torque rod components. Thus allowing the installer the flexibility to “make” a rod to the required length as needed. Various end configurations are available in both full ball and rubber- bushed styles.

Fully seat rod ends align and plug weld sleeve hole, then fillet weld sleeve and rod. Specific welding instructions from the rod manufacturer should be followed. Failure to do so may produce an inferior assembly.
